Ten years ago the UTSA Head Start Summer Institute was initiated by Dr. Harriett Romo at the University of Texas at San Antonio to help Head Start teachers and staff attend college and obtain college credit hours towards AA/AAS or BA /BAAS d`egrees during the summer. Since the first Summer Institute in 2002, UTSA has provided 264 Head Start teachers and staff the opportunity to return to college and continue working to obtain a degree. Over the past nine years, 3168 college credit hours have been earned by Summer Institute participants. The UTSA Head Start Summer Institute is funded by the US Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families. We have created partnerships with the City Of San Antonio Department of Community Initiatives, San Antonio College (SAC), St. Philips College, AVANCE, Edgewood I.S.D, San Antonio I.S.D, Region 20, Family Services, Community Action, Inc., and the Texas Migrant Council, Inc.
If you are interested in advancing your academic goals, meeting new friends and greatly improving your teaching techniques, the UTSA Head Start Summer Institute 2010 is the place for you. As a participant in the Summer Institute, you can earn up to 12 hours of college credit, do some professional networking, meet new friends and gain knowledge to be applied in your own classroom.
